As more and more organizations realize the benefits of an engaged workforce, they are turning their attention to fostering that engagement before a new employee even walks in the door on day one—what we call candidate engagement.
And for good reason. According to LinkedIn’s Talent Trends Report, 83 percent of candidates say a negative interview experience can change their mind about a role or company they once liked. On the other hand, 87 percent of candidates say a positive interview experience can change their mind about a role or company they once doubted.
The benefits of candidate engagement and excellent candidate experience are clear. However, with so many tips, hacks, and strategies out there, it can be hard to pinpoint where you should invest your time, money, and effort to get the greatest results. You need to know which ideas will work for your unique organization.
